Disclaimer: I don't own the show Heroes or Buffy. A full list of the Crossover characters used will be listed at the end of the story.
Xander stood watch over Laurie as she was loaded into the Ambulance. Loomis was out with the Deputies looking at a body that might be Myers killed in a car crash a few blocks over. He knew better but he couldn't tell them that.
Michael was still out there and was still coming for Laurie.
Guns had failed to kill him it was time to put his other talents to use in fighting him.
The cops had been nice enough to drop him at the hospital but the situation there worried him. Most of the staff was off only one Doctor and a few nurses were left spread out thru the hospital.
"This is so not good." Xander groaned as he made his way around the wards checking for any sign of Michael.
Xander closed his eyes and focusing on Laurie and Michael trying to run all the most likely happenings for there next encounter.
The numbers however were not coming out with one clear choice Michael's nature was unpredictable at best and add to it Laurie's drugged state there was too many options and not enough data to narrow thinks down.
Right now all he could do is to stay close to Laurie and make sure that Michael was stopped one way or another.
Xander smiled as he saw one of the Paramedics' checking on Laurie he knew from the files that he was Jimmy Lloyd Jamie's future father.
Ducking into an empty room Xander sat down and closed his eyes and tried focusing on Michael.
'Michael listen to me you don't have to do this.' Xander thought trying to reach Michael.
'Michael she is your sister your baby sister you are suppose to protect her.'
The backlash of evil and rage blasted back at him knocked Xander back against the wall.
Xander opened his eyes and wiped the blood that started dripping from his nose.
"Fuck feels like my brains are leaking out my ears." Xander murmured as he stood up.
Xander looked at the clock on the Wall near the door.
"Fuck me running." Xander gasped he had been knocked out for almost an hour
Michael moved silently thru the halls looking for his sister the evil inside him drawing him toward his sister she needed to die.
Xander moved toward Laurie's room quietly hoping he hadn't failed Laurie.
Opening the door to her room Xander found she was gone and in her place were several pillows which seemed to have been stabbed.
Xander rushed out of the room only to have a scalpel pushed into his gut.
"You fuck." Xander growled as he threw Michael across the hall with a push of his Telekinetic Power.
Pulling the Scalpel from stomach Xander looked at Michael.
"You know with your rep for being a serial killer I expected more Mikey." Xander mocked him as he dropped the scalpel and walked to the man sized hole in the wall Michael just created.
Looking thru the hole Xander saw Michael was gone again.
"Who is this guy David Copperfield?" Xander asked as he stepped thru the hole to find and empty room with the door open.
"Laurie Laurie." Called a man. Xander ran toward whoever was calling for Laurie because Michael wouldn't be far behind.
Xander grabbed an IV stand and pulled it from the base of the stand and pulled the top off the stand making a make shift club.
Xander ran down the hall where he saw Laurie, a woman and Dr Loomis and Michael.
"Hey Asshole." Xander yelled as he came up behind Michael.
As Michael turned his head and looked at Xander.
"You looked." Xander smiled as he swung for the fences with the IV stand. Knocking Michael down.
"Now would be a good time to run Loomis." Xander told them as he started wailing on Michael.
Michael grabbed the stand and started bending it back toward Xander.
"Bad Idea Mikey." Xander smiled as he let his electrical power charge thru the stand and into Michael shocking him.
The arc throwing Michael thru a door into a treatment room.
Xander looked as saw the small group still huddled in the hallway.
"Get her Out of here Loomis." Xander yelled as he followed Michael into the room.
Xander saw Michael starting to pull himself up by a set of Oxygen hoses only to yank them out of the wall.
Xander pushed the swinging door they entered in closed.
"Just us now Michael. I won't let you hurt her any more then you already have."
Michael cocked his head at Xander as if trying to understand how he was still alive.
"I heal fast." Xander smiled at Michael.
Michael charged Xander and Xander jumped up and clung to the ceiling.
"Spider-Man got nothing on me Mikey." Xander laughed as Michael's eyes widen at the Superhuman he was fighting.
Xander swung down planting both feet into Michael's chest. Driving him back into a stand of tanks.
Michael sprawled back knocking over tanks of oxygen and ether.
Xander stood up and his world filled with Gold as he began seeing the probabilities. Xander smile took on a hyena like quality.
Pulling his gun Xander aimed at the tank behind Michael as he stood up.
"Enjoy the Barbeque Asshole." Xander pulled the trigger and bullet hit the ether tank right at the neck sparking and igniting the pure oxygen and ether that had been seeping into the room since Michael pulled the hoses out of the wall.
The fireball blew thru the room.
Xander opened his eyes and found himself back in his motel room.
"God damn that was close."
Knock knock. Xander turned and looked at the door.
Walking to the door Xander looked thru the people and found a young man standing there a very determined look on his face.
Xander opened the door slowly.
"Can I help you?"
"I hope so. My name is Tommy Doyle. I need to talk to you about Michael Myers."
Xander opened the door and stepped aside. You can take the boy out of Sunnydale but you can't take the Hellmouth out of the boy.
"What about Michael Myers Mr. Doyle?" Xander asked.
"I need you help my friend Lindsay at the desk saw you file and called me. We were the children Laurie Strode was babysitting that night."
"And what do you need my help for?"
"I've discovered that Michael the reason for Michael's killings and seemingly invisibility."
"You have my attention." Xander told him.
Tommy smiled as he pulled out a print out of a Rune Symbol of Thorn.
"This is the Symbol of Thorn it was a Druid Rune and it was believed that in order to protect a town a single child would be cursed with it and made to sacrifice his family."
"And somehow Michael was cursed with this and that's why he killed his sister and went after Laurie Strode." Xander added.
"That's my hunch." Tommy tells him.
"I'm guessing there is more to this then you are telling me."
"During my research I discovered that there is a cult in this stat that has been around since the 1930's they are Druid in belief and I think this cult is the ones who cursed Michael."
Xander's eyes widened as he realized he changed the Timeline with him torching Michael. Loomis was around and healthy enough to protect Jamie Lloyd.
"Myself , Lindsay and Doctor Loomis hide Michael's niece after Michael's Escape from the Police Station. Whoever broke Michael out of the Jail has been hiding him ever since. We think we found him."
"And you need help getting to him." Xander stated.
"Yes we heard about you from a friend we have that found Laurie and John. And after they sent you to find Jamie we decided to see if you could help us take Michael down for good."
"Set up a meeting with Loomis I want to see him and Jamie then we will talk." Xander told him firmly.
"Not a problem how's tomorrow morning at the Myers house?"
"I'll be there."
5. Smith's Groove her we come
Path to the Future: part 6
Disclaimer: I don't own Heroes Halloween or Buffy you know this so let us move on to the story.
Xander pulled the camper up to the Myers house. He made one last check of his weapons ands stepped outside to find Tommy, Lindsey a girl he figured for Jamie and an older Dr. Sam Loomis.
Loomis' eye went wide.
'It's me Doc. I'll explain later.' Xander projected to Loomis Telepathically.
"So I believe you have some information about Michael Myers?" Xander asked.
Tommy walked over to the Camper and handed Xander a file folder of pictures he had taken of Dr. Terrance Wynn.
"We've been looking for Michael for quite sometime. After he escaped from the hospital where he was taken after he was flambéed in the Haddonfield Hospital by a private detective hired to protect Laurie. Michael came back to here almost ten years after that first Halloween night and tried to kill Laurie's daughter Jamie."
"He took out most of the Haddonfield Police Department and a bunch of other people before he was shot and dropped down a well and a pack of TNT was dropped after him." Lindsay Explained.
"That was the last we've seen of Michael until 3 months ago. 3 Months ago a Man who has been living alone in the woods for the last 15 yrs wondered into town for medical treatment for a busted hand he claimed that he found a man that crawled out of the nearby river and collapsed and had been in a coma since." Tommy continued.
"By the time the cops and paramedics got out to his cabin. The man was gone but the found a rusted butcher's knife with blood from Michael's last victims and Michael's prints on it. The cops found tire tracks of a van and signs of a struggle at the Cabin." Tommy Finished.
"So you think that this Dr. Wynn who was treating the man was the one to tip off whoever took Michael?"
Loomis nodded. "Wynn was the only other Doctor at Smith's Grove to treat Michael."
"So where do you think we should start looking for Michael?" Xander asked.
"Smith's Grove. We think Michael is there." Jamie told them with a snarl of hatred that startled them all
"Hey your Uncle is Son of a Bitch Jamie I get that but take is easy I'm here to help."
The Group all stared at Xander.
"How did you know my name and that he was my uncle?" Jamie demanded.
"Me and my big mouth." Groaned Xander.
"Your mother and you little brother hired me to find you and confirm your uncle was dead."
Jamie stared at Xander as her eyes rolled up in her head and she fainted.
"She took that well." Smiled Xander as he grabbed her.
Xander and Loomis sat at the table in his camper waiting for Jamie to wake up.
Tommy and Lindsey had gone to Tommy's room at the Boarding house across the street to get the gear they were going to need to break into smith's grove.
"Do you mind explaining how you are here considering the last time I saw you were almost 20 years ago and you blew up?"
"Trust me Sam you really don't want to know you'll sleep better if you don't. Let's just say Michael isn't the most evil thing in the world and there are those like me blessed or cursed with abilities to protect the world from that evil."
"Really?" asked Loomis.
"Most of us hide from the light of day we keep this war hidden in the shadows."
"Why did you let us think you were dead?"
"Loomis think about it I was at ground zero for a fire ball and explosion. How do I explain that?"
"Can I ask you why you are planning on going to break into Smith's Grove tonight?"
"Tommy and I have studied everything about Michael Haddonfield and the Myers Family as Possible."
"What did you find?"
"We believe that the Myers Family was part of a Cult of Druid Origin that has been around since the founding of Haddonfield. They cursed Michael with Thorn."
"What is the Curse of Thorn?" Xander asked slightly worried that things were gong to take a Sunnydale type turn.
"A child is infected with the curse and said child kills his entire family and this blood sacrifice ensures that the village is protected. The power of the curse varies depending on the location of certain of stars. Tonight the power of the curse is at its weakest. Tonight Michael can die for good." Loomis told him firmly.
The door to the camper opened and Tommy and Lindsey walked in dressed like Solid Snake and a cat burglar respectively.
"We're ready to kill him." Lindsey smiled. Her and Tommy's live had been warped because of him and they needed to see this thru.
"Hold on you two. We need to do this quiet so if you're gonna dress like you in a bad spy movie we need to wait for dark." Xander told them.
Loomis chuckled at that as did Jamie who seemed to have just woken up.
Xander smiled and rolled his eyes as he looked at the pair shuffle their feet.
"Relax we are heading over now we just have to finish this for everyone." Loomis told them.
Xander nodded and got into the driver's seat and started the drive to the loony bin. It was time to end Michael's Curse forever one way or another.
As the camper moved thru the streets unknown to the Group inside a lone man watched them leave.
After they were out of sight he pulled out a cell phone.
"Agent Webb reporting Sir. Dr Loomis and his team have just left for Smith's Grove sir. I believe that is the location of the subject. Michael Myers is perfect for Project Black Book."
"Very well Webb send you team in collect Mr. Myers." The woman on the other end of the phone answered and hung up.
The Camper rambled down the highway and pulled off on to a small dirt road.
"This service road leads to the rear fence by the Garden the Landscapers park here there is no video surveillance here only in the garden and the fence line." Tommy explained as they parked the Camper.
Xander stepped out of the Camper his shotgun at the ready Lindsey and Tommy following close behind.
Xander turned back and looked at Loomis and Jamie.
"You two say here and be ready to go at a moment's notice." Xander ordered them.
Loomis nodded Jamie just glared at him.
"Jamie this not that we don't think you should go. From what Tommy tells me you are the best shot among you and there are three ways I see this ending."
" all die inside Michael comes out and comes after you.
2. We kill Michael in which case we will be trying to escape with a bunch of crazy cult whack jobs after us.
3. We fail to kill Michael and he leads the Cult after our collective asses.
That is why I would like you here with that rifle Tommy gave you covering our escape." Xander explained.
"That I'll buy." Jamie told him as she cocked the rifle and went inside the camper setting up on the table out an open window.
Xander just shook his head. 'This family would be nuts without Michael.' He thought.
Xander motioned to Tommy and Lindsey and started down the dirt road to the Asylum.
As the trio entered the garden by climbing over the fence.
Tommy motioned for the others to follow him to a service door into the building.
Following him inside the building Xander felt something was wrong.
The Door behind them slammed shut and a light at the end of the hallway went on and revealed Michael Myers knife in hand.
"In the words of Admiral Ackbar it's a trap." Xander yelled.
6. Round Two
Path to Future: Finale
Xander vs. Michael Myers Round Two.
Disclaimer: See Part One
Xander looked down the hall at the imposing figure standing before him.
"Michael Myers." Xander whispered.
Michael looked down the hall at the trio with his dead malevolent black eyes.
Xander focused on Michael. 'Michael you know who I am. I stopped you from killing Laurie the first time you escaped'
Xander was blasted by pure rage. Whatever part of Michael that had been human was gone.
"Ok Round Two." Xander told him.
A group of people dressed in black and red robes emerged from the darkness behind Michael.
"Or Not." Lindsey yelled as bolted down the hall away from Michael.
"Tommy go get out of here now." Xander growled as he raised his shotgun.
"I'm not gonna leave you here." Tommy told him as he tried to pull Xander with him.
"Tommy get the hell out of here." Xander told him as he shoved him back and raised his shotgun.
"Ok the first one of you robe wearing weirdoes that takes a step toward be is getting a buckshot shampoo." Xander yelled as he racked the shotgun.
One of the cultists lunged at Xander only to receive a blast to the gut.
"I told you not too. This is between me and Michael."
Michael looked at Xander and squeezed his knife tighter.
The remaining cultists moved back down the hall and out of sight.
"So I got a question for you Michael are you original recipe or extra crispy?"
Michael began stomping down the hall.
Xander stood his ground.
Michael raised his knife to strike. Xander smiled and focused his telekinesis and slammed it into Michael.
"Forgot about my powers didn't you." Smiled Xander as he lower his shotgun and raised his hand and threw Michael into the wall.
"You Michael are a one stubborn son of a bitch but you also a little narrow minded." Xander told him as heaved Michael back up to his feet. Michael hanging in the air like a limp noodle.
"Michael I have to stop you." Xander told him as he walk up to him. "For Jamie to be safe you have to be put down." Xander told Michael.
Michael's arm shot out gripping Xander around the neck and lifting him into the air.
Lifting the shotgun in his hand Xander fired throwing Michael back and Xander dropped to the ground as the bones in his neck healed from Michael's grip.
"You're an asshole Michael." Xander gasped rubbing his throat.
Michael sat up and turned to face Xander.
"Seriously what are you made of Michael?"
Xander grabbed his shotgun and took off down the hall after Lindsey and Tommy.
Michael following him.
Lindsey and Tommy ran down the halls as fast as they could looking for any way out.
"Where the hell did you come from?" came a voice. The pair looked and found Dr Wynn and a pair of orderlies staring at them from down the hall.
"Get them." Wynn ordered the orderlies.
"Run Lindsey." Tommy yelled as he pushed her back the way they came.
Xander rounded the corner and saddled up against the wall. Looking over his shoulder he saw the orderlies work station. Xander smiled and he grabbed a hypo a sedative and the beanbag gun off the wall. Loading the drug into the needle and the needle into the gun.
"Thank you MacGyver." Smirked Xander.
Xander slid down the wall and waited for his shot.
"Where's Xander?" Lindsey asked. "He's trying to hold off Michael so we can get out of here." Tommy told her.
The pair stopped short as they saw Michael round the corner ahead of him.
"Oh shit." Lindsey gasped.
Boom a shot rang out and Michael had a hypo needle in his throat as Xander stood up from behind a desk gun in hand.
"I can't believe that worked." Xander told them as he dropped the empty weapon.
"Xander what the hell was that?" Lindsey demanded.
"Improvisation." Xander told them with a smile.
Xander was about to blow Michael's head off with his shotgun when something slammed into his back and his world went dark.
The world came swimming back to Xander in bits and pieces. He heard a voice.
"Yes sir we have taken Michael into custody we had several people we had to remove. Dr Wynn. A few Orderlies and two unidentified outsiders we took down a third but he survived. Once we secure Michael for transport we will find out who they are and why they were here."
Xander opened his eye slightly and say Lindsey face down on the ground part of her head missing. Tommy was a few feet away his hand holding his shoulder which was bleeding.
Michael was on a metal wagon trussed up like a thanksgiving turkey.
A team of heavily armed men wheeling him out a door.
Xander waited until the men were outside and the man who had been talking was alone.
"So friend are you going to tell me who this two are and end this quickly or are you going to force me to drag this out and make you scream before you die?" the man giving Tommy the kind of oily smile that used car salesmen have.
Xander grabbed the empty beanbag gun and pulled it close then he stood up.
"Or he picks what's behind door number three." Xander snarled as he hit the man with the gun.
"You ok Tommy?" Xander asked as he helped Tommy to his feet.
"How?" Tommy asked as Xander propped him up and began checking the pockets of the man he just knocked out. Pulling a gun and a bundle from the man's pockets and a flash bang grenade from his vest.
"We gotta go now." Xander told him as he pulled the pin on the grenade and chucked it after the men moving Michael.
Tommy covered his ears as the flash bang went off.
Xander grunted as he half dragged Tommy toward an emergency exit and out into the night.
Tommy grunted as he woke up in Xander's Camper.
Jamie rushed to his side. "Don't get up to fast Tommy you're still hurt." She told him as she helped him sit up.
"What happened?" Tommy rasped as Jamie leaned over to the fridge and got him a bottle of water.
"Xander is getting food he can explain everything that happen." She told him.
"Where's Lindsey?" Tommy asked fearing the answer.
"She didn't make it Tommy." Jamie whispered as she took Tommy's hand.
The door to the camper opened and Xander and Dr Loomis climbed in carrying Chinese food.
Xander saw Tommy was awake and gave him a small smile.
"Hey Tom glad you're awake."
Tommy's glare told Xander he knew about Lindsey.
"Yeah Lindsey. Tommy there is no easy way to say this but let me show you what we found." Xander pulled out a bundle of papers that he had pulled from the man Xander downed at Smith's Grove.
"Whoever took Michael I think was a spook." Xander told Tommy.
"A spook?" Jamie asked.
"A spy Jamie." Dr Loomis answered.
"How do you know that?" Jamie asked.
Xander tossed a badge and ID on the counter. The badge read Clayton Webb Central Intelligence Agency.
"You mean the Government killed Lindsey and took Michael?" Tommy growled.
"It's looking that way." Xander admitted.
Tommy leaned back against the wall.
"So now what are we do?" Tommy asked.
"Well Laurie is still waiting to meet her daughter. Why not relax take a breather recover from this battle and heal Tommy." Dr Loomis answered.
"We will find him again and we will make sure he never harms anyone ever again." Jamie told him firmly.
Xander smiled. "So I guess I'm driving to L.A. then."
"Fine but just letting you know I'm driving I control the radio station."
Dr Loomis smiled as he stood up. "I wish you all a safe journey." As he headed for the door.
"Sam if you need me call." Xander told him.
"Gladly Alexander I'll be keep a look out for Michael. If I hear any rumors or anything like that I'll call you."
As Loomis left Xander turned to his two new traveling partners. "Lindsey's funeral is tomorrow so we'll leave after we say goodbye."
Tommy nodded as he laid back down.
Jaime turned to Xander. "Do you think Michael will be back?"
Xander looked the young lady in the eyes.
"If he does come back I'll be waiting for him."
Author's note: Xander's Journey will continue in Hero Quest.
